Leaving Istanbul now and heading east with the bus towards Ankara, the country’s capital in the western Anatolia region. Most fellow travellers are sleeping but I can never seem to sleep while travelling. What if I were to miss something interesting!
Views from the bus window! Leaving Istanbul - crossing over the Bosphorus Bridge.
Half hour out of Istanbul. Shipping ports along the Sea of Marmara.
An hour+ out from Istanbul. Forgot to note where this was but quite sure this is the city of Izmit (a city devestated by a major earthquake in 1999). So much construction in this country!Two hours out of Istanbul. Beautiful low mountains. Gorgeous scenery.Four and a half hours out from Istanbul.
Five hours away from Istanbul. Such a variety of scenery. Camlidere Dam.
Small Turkish village nearing Ankara.Off to Ankara next.
